A short videopoem about loneliness when growing old. The narrative alludes to someone trying to find love, or at least any form of meaningful contact, on a match-up web platform.
The poem describes the desolated scenery of a scrapyard, a metaphor for the speaker life, while on the screen, curls of smoke slowly unfold and go.
